I'm a normal, healthy 26 yr old male. I got checked out by a doctor on 12-07-2013 and I have no health issues that would cause ED. However, I do not get an erection if I masturbate by myself (without porn), and I cannot achieve an erection when I'm with a girl. I started PMO with pictures at 14. I masturbated multiple times a day (3-5x), usually very quickly so I could pop one off before I hopped in the shower. At 16 I progressed to internet porn. My tastes never got more extreme than straight heterosexual porn, but I noticed my erections getting weaker and weaker (like 50-70%). Additionally, none of my erections lasted very long so if I didn't cum quickly I would lose it. I have been able to put together streaks of 7, 11, and 17 days. I relapsed when things started getting serious between me and my new girlfriend. I wanted to test some condoms and that resulted in me PMOing 4 or 5 times last week. We tried to become intimate 12-06-2013 and my dick was beyond limp. I actually thought it shriveled up. Luckily, she was very sweet and thought it was performance anxiety. I am pulling out all the stops to fight my ED problem because this girl is very special. I am planning to see her this weekend. I haven’t decided if I will try the Cialis my doctor prescribed, or disclose the issues I’m facing. Maybe I’ll try both? I’ve read a few other journals and some people have mentioned how difficult it was to start no PMO. As mentioned above, I've put together a few streaks before so starting out is no longer that challenging for me. However, some words of encouragement for brand new beginners are as follows: 1) Block websites that show any sort of provocative images. 2) Delete all stashes of porn. This is something you got to commit to forever, so don't save a favorite scene or anything. 3) There are IMMEDIATE benefits. I probably should have started with this. I noticed the following after just 3 days of not PMOing: i) deeper voice ii) more confidence iii) less brain fog iv) more willpower (I stopped biting my nails and quit caffeine already. I had been biting my nails longer than I had been PMOing). v) I'm not a big guy. About 5'7", 155lb. Decent looking but nothing to write home mom about. However, I noticed A TON more girls started paying attention to me when I stopped PMOing. As mentioned above, I recently started seeing a girl. There were definitely moments where the old me would have backed off but the new no-PMO me persevered through.
